The eastern portion of the kingdom of the Attalids was assigned to the client kings, so as to release the Romans from the protection of the frontier and thereby from the necessity of maintaining a standing force in Asia; Telmissus(34) went to the Lycian confederacy; the European possessions in Thrace were annexed to the province of Macedonia; the rest of the territory was organized as a new Roman province, which like that of Carthage was, not without design, designated by the name of the continent in which it lay.

34. Cf. III. IX. Extension of the Kingdom of Pergamus

The land was released from the taxes which had been paid to Pergamus; and it was treated with the same moderation as Greece and Macedonia. Thus the most considerable state in Asia Minor became a Roman province.
